Tim Bayne and I are putting together a new anthology, _Philosophy of
Cognitive Science: Classical and Contemporary Reading_, intended as a
companion volume for my anthology _Philosophy of Mind: Classical and
Contemporary Readings_, published by Oxford University Press in 2002.
We're hoping that the book will be useful for a wide variety if
undergraduate and graduate courses in the philosophy of cogntive
science and also in related areas such as the philosophy of
psychology, of neuroscience, and of artificial intelligence.
In putting together the table of contents, it would be very useful to
get feedback from as many people as possible about what they think
should be in such a book. It would be particularly useful to hear
from people who teach relevant courses, or who might do so in the
future, about what readings they consider essential or valuable, and
about what topics they think should be covered. But suggestions from
anyone are welcome. We're interested in suggestions both about
"classic" papers and about relatively recent works that are on the
leading edge of a field of inquiry.
Most likely the book will be around 700 pages and contain 60-65 papes.
One constraint is that the selection of papers can't overlap that in
my _Philosophy of Mind_ anthology (table of contents at
We'd very much appreciate any thoughts. Please reply by e-mail to
